I hope this is the right area to post this, I wasn't exactly sure where this should go.
I've tried searching for the problem, but haven't been able to find anything that exactly matches.
About a week ago I started having problems opening programs, I'd click the .exe file, the computer would act like it was working on opening it, the little circle thing would spin next to the mouse, then nothing would happen. After trying it a couple times I checked the Task Manager, and it showed the program a couple times in there.
I ran a virus scan, and found and removed a few viruses, ran a few other scans with other programs and removed everything, but it still wasn't working right, so I ran a format on the drives, and re-installed windows, completely fresh install... but the problem persisted.
Has anybody ran across this before? I'd appreciate any help that anyone can provide.
